Super hotel, super location, super staff, super breakfast, super beach facilities, super recognition of IHG rewards status. To find this gem easily, drive towards the corniche, then turn towards the West on the corniche, and after the intersection with the 18th street, turn left in the Bainuna street (clearly indicated). Slow now! Look for the intersection with the Zayed the...

When you approach the InterContinental Hotel in Abu Dhabi from the road, it is not so impressive as other hotels in the city or the sparkling Dubai: a squared grey building, or so. At night, the external lights make it quite fancier, but still not special. The impression changes when you enter and, even better, when you cross it and...

My wife and I have been traveling to Abu Dhabi for many years and have always stayed downtown. However, with the development of the Corniche beach at the Marina Mall/Emirates Palace end of the city now complete, the choice of the Intercon was perfect. Excellent private beach and many good restaurants, but for us the Club lounge was special and...
